Brighton vs Liverpool
English Premier League
Date: Saturday, November 28, 2020
Start at 12:30 PM UK / 1:30 PM CET
Venue: AMEX Stadium (Brighton)

Saturday lunchtime, which kicks off in the Premier League, will see Brighton face themselves in perhaps their toughest match of the season against champions Liverpool at home.

The Gaviotas are down at 16th, though they won their last game that ended four games without a win when they beat Aston Villa on the road 2-1. With the way Villa started the campaign, this result was seen as a shock.

Brighton has 9 points and is just five out of the bottom three, although a win could put them 14th.

The big concern for Graham Potter's team has been their home form, something that has kept them in previous seasons and, based on home form, the club would rank 18th.

Since their first 4 home games, Brighton has yet to achieve a victory, and their last game here ended in a 0-0 draw against Burnley.

Liverpool achieved an excellent result last weekend by beating Leicester, one of the league's earliest rivals, 3-0 at Anfield. The Reds come into this game second on goal difference with Tottenham and despite a bumpy start, they have won 20 points out of their first 27 available.

Form is good for Jurgen Klopp's side, who have won 3 of their last four matches. Although in the middle of the week they lost 2-0 at home to Atalanta in the Champions League. However, Klopp rested many players for this game and Liverpool still appear to be on track to qualify for their group. Defeat will not be of great concern to the club.

Brighton vs Liverpool: Prediction

Soccer is a fun game because Brighton, which is much weaker than Liverpool, just beat Aston Villa at Villa Park. And yet, just a few weeks ago Liverpool lost on the same ground 7-2.

But we must not be fooled and if Brighton were to get anything here, even a draw, it would be seen as a surprise. Jurgen Klopp was smart in the middle of the week, it is true that Liverpool lost the game, but he was able to afford it and gave rest to key players for this match.

This is a match in which we believe the Reds will easily come to victory and history goes that Brighton has a very poor record over Liverpool and we don't see that change over the weekend, an away win.
